These are some of the experiences our students have had

Working with Mayambo

Del once told me that I would give up on me before he gave up on me, and he was right! Del is so patient. I’m not the quickest learner or the best dancer, but he’s very attuned to the strengths and weaknesses of his students…he doesn’t rush his students. Because of that, my skills have improved. He’s a very observant instructor. He’s an awesome dancer. And he’s very passionate about Salsa/Mambo. If you’re intimidated by the thought of privates, as I was, don’t be. He puts his students at ease. Every class is energy-filled and fun!

There are a lot of great dance teachers in Chicago, but for Salsa, Mayambo is the best. Hands down. Whether you are a lead or a follow, he can quickly pinpoint what is holding you back and set you on a path to improve. His lessons are always a blast and the studio community he has engendered is full of supportive, fun, and talented people. Whether you are just starting out or looking to raise your salsa game, Mayambo is truly your best option.

For me, working with Mayambo is a genuine exchange of the joy of dance. They focus on getting you seriously prepared for your dance journey, always pushing you to reach for your full potential. They challenge their students to exercise fundamentals, ensuring their ongoing success in whatever physical medium they wish to pursue. Their teaching style reflects their character, caring about his students both as dancers and as people. You’re reminded to never take yourself too seriously, and most importantly, the whole learning process fun! It’s a pleasure to learn from Mayambo. ❤️
